A very provocative article. Let me know your thoughts on JJJ.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I strongly disagree with this guy. I must admit, JJJ does play some very bizarre music i've never heard of. Some of it i dont like but how else would i have found artists like COG, Le Tigre, Gary Jules, Pre-Shrunk? No other station plays them. Maybe the music isnt to Phil's liking because it's just new to him and he's afraid of things that are unfamiliar. JJJ has the hard task of supporting ALL the music the other stations wont.
I also believe the J's role is not just to play music but keep us all informed. I cant believe he's petitioning AGAINST new and current affairs when JJJ is one of the few stations that actually reports what is really going on in the world. Steve Cannane's morning show which probably took the hardest beating is, in my opinion, the most informative current affairs program on radio or TV.
It's a radio station for the youth Mr Tripp, sounds to me like you're just getting old.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

When I lived in pre-JJJ Perth a zillion years ago we always heard how alternative it was, then when they ran the test broadcast with Jimmy Barnes we were worried, and as it turned out JJJ is just another top 40 station, complete with breakast and other "krews". What happened to alternative music?? You go into a CD shop and the "alternative" section is the top 40/JJJ bands. I agree with Phil that there's too much talk on JJJ and talk should stay on AM. Also Megan Spencer is a joke as a film "critic". The only thing I was listening to on JJJ was the J Files, which was the only time JJJ ever played anything released more than 4 months ago. The only way to hear new or genuinely alternative music on the radio in Melbourne is to tune into particular programs on eg. RRR or PBS, or some programs on some uni stations.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Agree with some he has to say, but not all. Heard Charlie and Nichole interview You Am I a while ago, kept refering to Andy as Kent thinking it was his first name! Would think they could get half funny DJs who actually have an interest in the music they play - like Australia's biggest rock band. And Mr Tripp, like the guy and what he does. Went to a seminar by him a while ago...v.good. Keept goin on about the iPod. Who makes iPod? Look inside the industry directory....who's the major sponsor?......thought so.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I agree with Phil mostly, as I work with a lot of young people a lot of the feedback I get from most youth is they don't even switch on the js as its not meeting meeting their musical tastes. Although I believe that diversity is the key to meet the needs of teens and people in their 20s, jjj has lost the plot and is alienating many younger listeners. However I do enjoy some of the issues they talk about although this should be reduced relatively for more music. Currently I have my dial on 90.7 syn fm. All the presenters are real young people in their teens (not 30yr olds who think they're funky), it has no play lists but the music is great. Its pretty rough around the edges with the presenters but thats what makes it so enjoyable - the no bullshit factor. Syn fm is the station that a lot of teens are switching to these days and we're seeing a lot less of them even considering jjj. What's best is there are no ads as well. Not entirely bagging out the js as they have continued to break some fantastic new talent, however this is also losing focus as I get an enormous amount of feedback from bands that feel neglected by the station. Of course its highly competitive, but the station is not very much on the mark with this. I see at least 12 live bands every week, some of the best bands in the country, maybe the world in the moment are in melbourne and the js are entirely neglecting this amazing music while they are hopelessly pushing some less than mediocre bands. Get with the program people, some of the bands out there don't even compare with the 'new aussie talent' you're exposing, become a part of the scene. Phil Trip is definitly right with one thing, if you're going to be a youth radio station then make connection again, speak to your audience, include them in the process and give them some control, that's what will separate you from the other pretentious commercial stations around that pretend to be youth focussed, which is what triple j has unfortunately become.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
